Traveling in an RV has always been my dream, but my wife and I have never really known where to start. Of course, we did a lot of research into types of vehicles and amenities, but one thing about RV travel that we’ve found intimidating is choosing our destinations.

Thankfully, we’ve narrowed down some great places for newbies like us to start! Here are the top 5 most beautiful RV parks in Texas:

1. Padre Island National Seashore

Padre Island National Seashore is an ideal place for campers and tourists alike. Unfortunately, while camping is allowed in designated areas, the park does not provide any RV hookups. 

While this may be a drawback for some people, there are still many options for those who want to enjoy the beach without staying in their RV at night.

Several oceanfront campsites available throughout Padre Island National Seashore offer incredible panoramic views of sunrise and sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. 

Many of these sites also come with picnic tables and grills so that you can cook up fresh seafood caught during your day on the water or eat lunch while watching dolphins play offshore.

If you’re looking to get off the grid while still having access to your creature comforts, consider spending a few nights here.

2. The Vineyards Campground and Cabins

The Vineyards Campground and Cabins is located in Driftwood, Texas. It’s a beautiful location with a scenic view of Lake Travis. The campground offers cable TV and WiFi, as well as showers and laundry facilities for guests. 

In addition to the RV sites, there are also cabin rentals available on-site as well as cute cabins for rent at nearby locations such as the Driftwood Golf & RV Resort or Lakeside Resort condos that offer stunning views of Lake Travis and all its amenities, including swimming pools, hot tubs and full kitchens.

If you’re looking for some great shopping or want to enjoy some live music, check out nearby Gruene Hall, which has been around since 1880 when it opened as an opera house.

3. South Llano River State Park

South Llano River State Park is a beautiful historical and natural location. The park is located at the headwaters of the South Llano River and offers activities ranging from fishing to hiking.

It also has lots of wildlife, with deer roaming around on their own and many birds playing in trees or flying overhead. It’s a great place to visit if you’re looking for something off the beaten path but still want access to amenities like restrooms, picnic tables, and even an RV hookup.

The weather in this area tends toward hot summers with cool winters during which it may get into the upper 30s at night (but not much colder).

4. Garner State Park

Garner State Park is a popular destination for many Texans and those visiting the state. Situated in Concan, Texas, along the Frio River, Garner State Park offers camping on its two campgrounds: Garner Lake and Garner Dam/Lake Creek Campground.

The park also has several cabins to rent out if you’re looking for more comfort than just a tent or RV. The park is home to a variety of wildlife, including white-tailed deer, raccoons, squirrels and beavers. 

Many visitors go fishing during their visit because the Frio River runs through this park, providing excellent conditions for anglers to catch bass and other fish species.

You can also hike around the park’s trails or take part in canoeing down its rivers, both popular activities at Garner State Park.

5. Hill Country State Natural Area

The Hill Country State Natural Area is located in the Texas Hill Country near Fredericksburg and is known for its spring wildflowers, limestone caves, and proximity to the Pedernales River.

This park has several amenities, including fishing and hiking trails, picnic areas with grills and playground equipment, restrooms/showers/laundry facilities (for an additional fee), RV hookups with dump stations available at some sites ($10-15 per day), tent camping sites (no hookups) available at some sites ($15-20 per night), cabins ($50+ per night).

The main attraction here is a 2 1/2 mile hike that takes you through limestone caves full of stalactites and stalagmites. You’ll also see rock climbers scaling walls and beautiful views from above in this area which sits hundreds of feet above sea level near downtown Fredericksburg.

The cave itself has been closed off since 2003 due to safety concerns related to increased visitation; however, there’s still plenty else to see here!

One thing we noticed about this park was that quite a few people from all over had come together – families with young children were playing soccer together. At the same time, older couples sat around talking about their travels through Europe or maybe even America.

These parks are the most beautiful in Texas.

The parks on this list are the most beautiful RV parks in Texas. They are national, state and state natural areas, so you can rest assured that you will have a wonderful experience.

The amenities include showers, bathrooms, laundry facilities and picnic areas. Some of these accommodations have cabins for rent as well as RV sites with water hookups or electricity only. The parks are open year round.

If you’re looking for a place to relax by the lake or camp out under the stars this summer, these parks may be just what you’ve been searching for! With breathtaking views of nature all around them, it’s easy to see why so many people love spending time there every year.


Of course, this list is by no means exhaustive; there are plenty of other campgrounds and RV parks that are just as beautiful! But if you’re looking for a starting point, these five parks are a great place to begin. 

Remember that the best way to enjoy your trip is to stay flexible: If a campground is already full when you get there, try somewhere nearby and see if you can make it work. A little flexibility goes a long way in ensuring you don’t miss out on any opportunities to build memories with your family or friends—and, of course, soak up some gorgeous Texas sunshine!
